My boyfriend's birthday is Sunday so I decided to make him a hat featuring his favourite band, at present. I couldn't wait so I gave it to him today. He was soooo happy, jumping up and down and squeezing me and then pretending to be cool to pose for the pics  Smiley. He thinks it's so great having a creative girlfriend, but he had better come good on my birthday!

Hat is made with bleach and vinyl patches I cut with an exacto knife (well, actually, an exacto blade and some paper wrapped round it 'cause I couldn't find my exacto). I used black fabric paint to splatter the patches before I glued them on. I also used album artwork as a guide.







What do you guys think? (I hope I put this in the right category).

That is too cool. I love the bleach splatterness of it. It's totally awesome that he loved it too. I'm not a big fan of saosin or anything but you did an awesome job.


Grrr why can't I type right.

That's awesome. I'd make a cap for myself, but sadly I don't wear hats.
